My wife and I always try to stay at different B&B's in Cape May, but for our anniversary this year, we felt we HAD to return to the Queen Victoria. Yet again, it did not disappoint. As before, the owners know how to treat their guests, welcoming us into their home, and making sure every possible need is taken care... More

The Queen Victoria is a beautiful Inn with a perfect location. A 2 minute walk in any direction gets you shops, restaurants, entertainment and beaches. We stayed in Brighton and had a whole pantry and sitting area to ourselves (shared with one other room but they didn't use it). The fridge was always stocked with complimentary bottled water and various... More

I stayed in two different rooms in Queen Victoria. I would recommend the rooms only at the main building. My friend and i went here for a few days and all the rooms were booked so we had to switch rooms after 1 night. However, the second room we were assigned to was really creepy so we ended up paying...

Absolutely a must experience, both Diane and I love it. What a pleasant time from the moment we checked in. Our room was beautiful, extremely clean and comfortable. Location couldn't be better, you are one block from the beach and 2 blocks from the shops. The owners meet and greet you at breakfast and spend time getting to know you... More

The Queen Victoria Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place. The decor is to perfection. There is attention to detail right down to the chocolates on your pillow and the toiletries offered. Breakfast was average to good. We were served an egg casserole and ham along with the expected fruit, cereal, pastries and coffee. The food was cold as it... More

Thanks for this review and important feedback. I'm sorry that your experience at The Queen Victoria wasn't all you had hoped for. I can imagine that if you were expecting the cozy intimacy of a small 5 or 6 room inn, then one of our garden suites with a private entrance from outside would have lacked the warmth you were...

I'm thrilled that your "girlfriend weekend" at The Queen Victoria was a good one. Cape May is a great girls getaway town. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves so much.

One of the best things about the Queen Victoria is its location. If going to the shore is your thing, then you have only a two block walk. But if shopping in adorable little stores or going on a tour is it for you, then you have a short three block walk to Washington Street where all the action is... More
